The Education Act 2002 places a duty on schools to have arrangements in place to ensure that they safeguard and promote the welfare of children; and follow statutory guidance. Governing Bodies must have someone who understands the requirements of the safeguarding guidance and legislation.
This course will help all governors, but particularly the safeguarding governor, understand their role and how it helps keep all children safe.
Each Unit consists of a one-minute ‘quick facts’ video and written information, along with relevant downloads.
The course is aimed at governors in maintained schools and academies, but has value for MATs, independent schools and free schools too, although some legislative requirements around governance might be different.
